Oftentimes, anime can be so over the top, so ridiculous with it’s outlandish plot and/or setting, that it’s just begging to be parodied. In the case of the YuGiOh series, where teens and adults fight with monsters at a school using cards made for children, this concept is exemplified to its fullest. Every character in the series pulls out dramatic, completely unlikely wins out of nowhere, due to the fact that they’re probably a main character. Bad guys always talk in the corniest villain voices with the worst fashion sense possible. And don’t get me started about the hair. Everyone’s hair! This has to be some kind of joke, right?
Enter the YuGiOh Abridged series, which this poster is based on. A parody of YuGiOh’s cartoons, the abridged series was a web-based series that whittled YuGiOh down to its most base form. This poster captures all of the characters from the parody series in one, massive scene. Whether your kid enjoys YuGiOh, or reviles the show, this poster makes a great gift for your anime enthusiast; either it’s YuGiOh anything (and they love it) or it’s poking fun at YuGiOh (and they love it). Either way, this poster is making me want to eat a big bowl of Yugios.
